What is it?
An ADHD assessment provides individuals with specific information about their own attentional and mental health unique needs and challenges. An ADHD diagnosis can open up a world of resources, funding sources, and community connections.
The assessment will involve an intake interview, an observation and diagnostic evaluation of cognitive and executive functioning using psychometric measures, and completion of several rating scales to address and rule out additional mental health concerns.
Upon the completion of testing, a report will outline the findings and be explained to the individual. If criteria is met for a formal diagnosis then we can assist with next steps, such as completing forms and directing to appropriate agencies. An important outcome of each assessment is a list of strategies and resources for helping individuals reach their true potential.
